I'll show you how to remove those toolbars (address bar and status bar),
but you should know that those toolbars are important security features
that many people have requested.
In earlier versions of Windows, web developers could open a window
without telling you where the content was coming from. You could be
looking at a phished or malicious web site and never know. Starting with
IE 7, you can see exactly where you are because now all windows have
address and status bars.
To eliminate the bars: Control Panel > Internet Options > Security tab >
Internet Zone > Allow websites to open windows without address or status
